LEARN MORE ABOUT EMILY

Tell us a little bit about your history and how you came to be at Wickens Herzer Panza.

Before joining Wickens Herzer Panza, I practiced transactional law at a large law firm and gained experience working on complex corporate transactions. I also have a strong connection to Northeast Ohio and enjoy representing clients that are a part of my community. Wickens Herzer Panza offers a unique opportunity to continue working on transactions while also counseling local businesses with their day-to-day corporate law issues and needs, which is something I am passionate about.

Why did you begin practicing this area of law in the first place?

I’ve always been a creative person and enjoy reading and writing, which was part of the reason I went to law school. I realized that corporate transactions frequently involve interesting issues that require a creative solution and collaboration between multiple parties, and have found that to be a challenging and rewarding part of the corporate law practice.

What one quote resonates with you, either personally or professionally (or both)?

"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make." Jane Goodall
